the farm bill and it already passed the u.s. senate and a scheduled vote wednesday on a repeal of the affordable care act known as obama care following the ruling last week by the supreme court. it is sunday, july 8 and will begin with our focus on u.s. foreign policy and hillary clinton who is in tokyo today for a series of talks on the u.s./nato role in afghanistan or the next decade. will get your calls and comments about u.s. foreign policy generally and the performance of the secretary of state, hillary clinton specifically. our phone lines are open -- you can join the conversation on our twitter page and facebook. or send us an e-mail. there are a couple of articles related to the secretary of state and this one is from cbs news. she beat the former record held by madeleine albright. there is this from "the l.a. times." she was asked about corruption in the country. she said it is a major challenge to meet the standards of accountability and transparency. the exchange came during this unannounced stopover by the secretary of state. even if her words or encouraging, many i
vehicles, uav's. pilotless aircraft used mostly by the u.s. military for surveillance, reconnaissance, and killing, as in yemen recently. he here at home, law enforcement agencies, local police, are eager to utilize drones for civil surveillance. some already do. 146 commercial drones are now accessible for civil law enforcement nationwide. the number is expected to skyrocket. the the u.s. senate armed services committee called for allowing these drones to operate, quote unquote, freely and routinely in u.s. airspace. such authorization has rattled some members of congress. notably republican senator rand paul. he's introduced an act to prohibit the i don't say of drones by u.s. civilian government unless authorized by a warrant. that would put parameters on such usage. >> what i would say is that drones could be used if you have a proper warrant but that means you go through a judge, a judge has to say there's probable cause of a crime, but i don't want dreams crisscrossing our city and country snooping on americans. that's a surveillance state that i'm very concerned about and that'
tavis: good evening. from los angeles, i am tavis smiley. tonight, a conversation with former u.s. secretary of state colin powell. the decorated four-star general has a new book that focuses on the lessons he learned along the way about life and leadership. the new book is called "it worked for me." will talk about the american wars abroad, the crisis in syria, and the 2012 presidential race, of course. we are glad you could join us. the conversation colin powell, coming up right now. >> every community has a martin luther king boulevard. it's the cornerstone we allit's not just a street or boulevard, but a place where walmart stands together with your community to make every day better. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. tavis: it is an honor to welcome colin powell back to this program. the former secretary of state and decorated four-star general is a best-selling author, whose latest book is called "it worked for me." he joins us from washington. secretary colin powell, good to have you back. >> good to be here, tavis. tavis: and a s
nuclear weapons program, you give us legitimacy for what we are doing and a broad an deep nuclear program and we'll be satisfied if assad falls, that would be a disastrous deal for the west but it is one iran could well angle for and tying it all together is very much behind the idea of hosting peace talks among the syrian factions. >> eric: do you think that is a deal the obama administration would take? and could be offered? >> well, let me be clear. i think it is a disastrous deal but yes, i think the obama administration would be inclined to take it. since their diplomacy, both with respect to iran's nuclear weapons program and the ongoing civil war in syria, has been such a failure. being able to amass a successive diplomacy would give them something, even though the end result i think would be very, very risky for the united states and israel and our arab friends in the region serving it comes as the panetta report came out which is troubling, potentially, they are developing a missile that they think could hit the united states within three years. i mean, that report, ambassador, w
after weeks of legal back and forth, the state's allowed to use a federal database to remove noncitizens from the voter rolls. critics say this process targets poor and minority voters. but florida's governor says it's going to help improve the election process. john zarrella reporting from miami. >> reporter: for months state of florida wrangling with the federal government over access to a federal database. now this federal database has lists of people who are in the country legally but not eligible to vote. well, over the weekend, florida and the department of homeland security finally arrived at an agreement which will allow florida access to that database so that it can go through and look for people in the state who probably shouldn't be on the voter rolls. now, governor rick scott said this morning on cnn that this was, in fact, an important step. >> i don't know anybody, any supervisor of election or anybody in the state thinks nonu.s. citizens ought to be voting our races. it's good for all of the citizens. >> reporter: officials will have to be trained on exactly how to use tha

been kidnapped in that area this year. the u.s. embassy in cairo saying we are in close touch with the egyptian authorities who are doing everything they can to bring about the safe release of the american tourists. joining me from jordan is elise. good morning. tell us what is different about this kidnapping than the others we have seen this year. >> reporter: yes, randi. the reason it's different is this time the kidnappers are usually doing these kind of things for money. this time, they have an agenda. they have relatives that have been detained on drug charges and they want to let them go. it's more complicated than getting that money to them. they get released right away. this time, it's more complex. >> they are making specific demands to have their relatives released? >> specific demands to have relatives released. the americans are saying they are working with the egyptian authorities, but they have their own laws. a lot of times, you don't negotiate with kidnappers or those kind of people. it's more complex than just giving them their money and letting the people go.
of homicides hit u.s. cities. chicago compared to afghanistan while a rash of shootings rattle afghanistan. later, a shocking death among the hollywood elite. sage stallone dead at 36. >>> it is saturdays, july 14. good morning. glad you are with us. i'm randi kaye. it is early. hopefully your kids are tucked in bed sleeping like angels. it's what one tennessee woman was hoping for when she adopted a little boy from russia. he was a 7-year-old boy that his mother decided he was mentally unstable. she put him on a plane and returned him like a pair of pants that didn't fit. she was not aware of his mental condition. now, a tennessee judge ordered the mother in this case to pay for the boy's care in russia since legally, she's considered to be his mother. she has to pay $150,000 in back support and fees plus, $1,000 a month until he's 18. he's ten, so it will amount to $246,000, to be exact. the boy wanted to will her. the adoption agency says the boy was not olent. here is my talk back question for you. do you think the mother should have to pay for the boy? should she pay more, less or not

now grant us into finer rights. those come from nature and god according to the declaration of independence. >> you know what? the real story is that a lot of this is being thrown back to the states and governors like louisiana's bobby jindal will have the ability to refuse it using whatever curious reasoning they can muster. >> states are different. founing fathers intended each state to be a laboratory of exper menation. the reality is if what works in massachusetts may not be appropriate to another state. >> really comparing mardi gras to -- >> yes, he really did. i'm join ed by sheila jackson lee, good afternoon, ma'am. >> it's a pleasure to be with you and for all americans, this is a special week for us. happy fourth of july. >> indeed. you have been an unwaivering advocate for children in texas. you're the co-chair of the congress congressional children's caucus. what is your reaction when you hear charles perry say he's completing opposed to the health care reform even though 22% of children in your state have no health insurance whatsoever? >> the reason i began thi

real achievements in business, they show how he would try to run the country. they give us a look at what his tax policy would really be and what he believes in. mitt romney, i don't think, is making the case to the american people that he would be a president that americans can trust. it's all about the tax return. number one, i would like to know, how is he listed? general partner? president, owner? ceo? and then he signed it. i assume he signed his own tax return, even if he had somebody put it together, even if it's 500 pages. and the other thing is the business deductions. did mitt romney have any business deductions that dealt with bain capital? because if he did, he was flat-out lying to the american people when he said he had no n involvement. and maybe mitt romney has made the political calculation that it's just a heck of a lot safer and a hell of a lot easier to lie to the american people than it is to the internal revenue service. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. tonight's question -- this is a good one -- what will do more damage to mitt romney
romney started in bain in 1977. 25 years later, well, that takes us to 2002. according to mitt romney and his camp, the candidate didn't make any decisions for bain after 1999. he only benefitted financially from them. well, his campaign spokeswoman, ann degree yaw sall released this statement today. governor romney left bain capital in february of 1999 to run the olympics and had no input on investments or management of the companies after that point. another campaign aide told politico romney wasn't involved in any investment decisions. he was on the sec filings because he was still technically the owner, but just hadn't transferred owner ship to the other partners. well, history paints a very different picture. david corn of mother jones uncovered a february 1999 "boston herald" report about romney leaving for olympics. romney said he will stay on as part-timer with bain, providing input on investment and key personnel decisions. well, in july of 1999, romney was identified as the boss in a bain press release about the departure of two executives. bain capital ceow. -- willard, tha

, and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. happy birthday to vin diesel. vin diesel turned 45 years old today. and on the occasion of the birthday of the movie star who oddly looks like newark mayor cory booker a lot, vin diesel's wildly successful car related fast paced exploding movie "fast and furious" is back in the news. at least it's back in the news paper. this is an ad, look at this, this is an ad that ran in the washington times today. the washington times is the moony newspaper in washington, d.c. in my opinion, it is not a particularly credible newspaper as a source of news, but it is a conservative milk piece of source, so the washington times does get read, at least by republicans. in the washington times today, a $100,000 reward is offered for verifiable evidence of white house involvement in operation fast and furious. a bounty. so years of obsessive conspiracy minded investigations by house republicans did not turn up any evidence of this. but maybe this reward money in the moony newspaper in washington will. this ad was linked to roll column newspape
during our talk today using his most turn language yet that he says mitt romney needs to come clean. >> harry truman said, the buck stops with you. my understanding is that mr. romney attested to the ftc multiple times he was the chairman ceo and president of bank capital. i think most americans figure if you are the chairman, ceo and president of a company then you are responsible for what the company does. ultimately, mr. romney is going to have to answer those questions because if he aspires to being president, one of the things you learn is by you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations. that is probably a question he will have to answer. i think that is a legitimate part of the campaign. >> in the think he should answer that soon? >> absolutely. >> the president goes a comments to us during that interview getting a quick and decisive reaction from the mayor romney camp. mitt romney says it is chicago politics at its worst. he said -- so this war of words only intensifying. it will not go away anytime soon as we continue to look at the topic of mitt romney
. romney hits back saying the president uses taxpayer money to help his wealthy donors while the middle class struggles. >>> authorities release documents on dozens of phone calls made by the man accused of killing an unarmed black teenager. breaking news in the george zimmerman case. >>> plus if you use hairspray, nail polish or certain other cosmetics you need to hear this. jenna: i'm listening. jon: how the things that keep you looking good might contribute to bringing on a very bad medical condition. it's all "happening now.". jenna: we have a lot of great stories for you today but we start with this fox news alert. brand new information, brand new report on the kidnapping of a boston pastor in egypt. we're glad you're with us, everyone. i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the man who claims to have abducted the reverend michel louis, an american women with their church group and a tour guide claims he is talking to intelligence officials about releasing them but it comes with a condition. now there is word a secret plan might be in the works, this as the abductor else tells the ap h
, you necessarily have to kill hitler. but this retroactive retirement is the worst use of a time machine i have ever seen. >> or to even lower gas prices, but even as the week threatened to be sucked down the drain of mitt's hot tub time machine, the obama camp released a new ad hinting at romney's lack of tranz pa transparency. >> tax havens, offshore accounts carried interest. mitt romney has used every trick in the book. he admits in the last two years he's paid less than 2% on 43 million in income. >> the romney campaign of course was busy trying to change the subject, suggesting what else? that the president isn't american. here's romney east surrogate on a romney conference call earlier today. >> the president is clearly dem traited that he has absolutely no idea how the american economy functions. the men and women all over america who have worked hard to build these businesses, their business businesses, from the ground up, is how our economy became the envy of the world. it is the american way and i wish this president would learn how to be an american. >> some of us whi
and gentlemen, let us warmly greet, governor mitt romney. >> thank you. thank you [applause] >> thank you. thank you so much. thank you. thank you for your kind intrurksz mayor. and thank you for the warm welcome. it's a pleasure and a privilege to be in israel again and to see so many dear friends. to step foot into israel is to step foot interest a nation that began with an ancient promise made in this land, the jewish people persisted to one of the most monstrous crimes in human history. now this nation has come to take its place among the most impressive democracies on earth. israel's achievems are a wonder of the modern world. these achievements are a tribute to the resilience of the israeli people. have you managed against all odd, time and again throughout your history to persevere, to rise up and to emerge stronger. the historian, paul johnson, writing on the 50th anniversary of the creation of the jewish state, said that over the course of israel's life, 100 completely new independent states had come into existence. quote, israel is the only one whose creation can fairly be called a mir
us about that, alicia. >> reporter: yeah. judge william sylvester will also address the motions by the defense as well as by the media. 20 media organizations including fox news are requesting that records relating to the case be unsealed arguing that the public has a legitimate interest in knowing what actions were taken by multiple officials in the case including information relating to dr. lynn fenton. she is a psychiatrist at the university of colorado medical center, who according to court documents was treating holmes and to whom he sent a package. fox and other news outlets said that package contained a notebook which holmes reportedly dei would at that the killings. the defense has filed a motion that package be turned over immediately. bill: a lot to go through. alicia acuna thank you. the deeper it gets. more coming up on the story. holmes would potentially face hundreds of charges today. plus what about his behavior in and outside of the courtroom? is it an act? our panel will debate that. heather. heather: three of the victims were laid to recent over the weekend in
on fire fantasies about communists coming up the canal to come get us in the middle of the night, those have been around for a while, in the 1970s and the 1980s. the panama canal was the fast and furious, birth certificate, the president is a secret muslim conspiracy theory of its day. when that panama canal conspiracy theory was lighting up the tin foil hats of the generation ago, it was an ambition politician named ronal reagan who took that issue from the fringe and decide today mainstream it into national mainstream republican politics. he based his presidential campaign in part on this insane idea that the panama canal was basically an american state that we can't let the communists steal this american thing from us. he mainstreamed this paranoid far right fantasy that if we went along with our treaty obligations to let panama run its own canal, then america would seize to exist. we would be destroyed as a nation. if panama got control of the panama canal, that would be the beginning of a very quick and bloody end for america. this worked great for ronald reagan in political terms.
to the u.s. as children and this administration refuses to take steps to check whether their claims are true or not. thdepartment of homeland security has gone out of its way to avoid the enforcement of immigration laws. the department policy of not enforcing will cause innocent americans their jobs. as secretary, you like all americans also must be concerned about the recent disclosure of national secrets. the methods of intelligence we used to protect security must be kept secret. when the secrets leak, american lives are threatened. recent damaging leaks include operational details of the bin laden raid, specifics about how we conduct cybersecurity, and information about drone strikes. because of these, enemies now know how we will hunt them, which will make it more difficult. o met security depends on our ability to keep secrets from those who would attack our homeland. when they become public knowledge, people and our -- people and our national petition -- interests are in jeopardy. the ability to keep secrets depends on identifying causes and put a stop to them. that is why i

"politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> welcome to "politicsnation." i'm al sharpton live from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, mitt romney spoke at the naacp convention. but who was he really speaking to? governor romney made a series of statements that seemed designed to win over the conservative base by antagonizing the audience inside the room. it started with his unnecessary use of the term "obama care." to the attacks on the president's health care law. >> so to do that i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ booing ] >> now, here's how that insult played inside the room in the crowd. >> non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care and i'm going to work to replace it. >> wrong service. >> not obama care. >> won't say that again. >> he said the wrong thing now. he know he did. >> romney also attacked the president on jobs. and claimed he's the candidate to help the africa
, send them to us. >> dave: anyway, we'll talk about that later on. we start with politics, as you know, it's been on the campaign trail, the obama campaign going right after mitt romney, of course, and mentioning that they thought he could have committed a felony in regard to his time at bain capital when he left to run the olympics. the president on saturday staying on the attack in virginia and again going after mitt romney. >> alisyn: then it was interesting to hear the president spokesperson yesterday say this goal for the campaign. here is a quote, of course the president wants to have a high brow debate about these policy issues and what the american people actually care about. that's from general. you know, of course, people on the other side of just laughing about this, because how high brow is it to go for the felony charge of your opponent? >> a swiss bank account, or bermuda business or whatever. >> alisyn: of course the president would say these are all important things to raise, the american public needs to know, if somehow their prospective presidential candidate is misle
, we got off the phone a short while ago from a official in the u.s. embassy in cairo. that person maintains line that american authorities are working with egyptian authorities for the safe release of the three. there could be developments in the next few hours but so far nothing new on that. it happened on friday as you said on egypt's sinai peninsula. this mission group was said to be on their way to israel after perhaps a visit to that mt. sinai site when the incident happened. armed bedouin tribes people, boarding the bus and demanding a few people get off. the word we're getting is that the pastor, michel louis offered himself instead of other passengers. he was taken along with that woman, along with their tour guide. the demand is that the uncle of the main leader of this, these hostage-takers should be released from a alexander, egypt jail. he said is being jailed on drug chars. the word we're getting egyptian authorities are not budging yet on that demand, jon. jon: what has been the reaction back home from the pastor's con agation, et cetera? >> you can imagine how conce
opposition wants kofi annan removed saying he has failed to broker a peace plan. a u.s. official tells cnn syria is believed to be moving some of its chemical weapons. why? it is unclear, the answer that is, but the question is causing significant concerns here in the u.s. and abroad. here is barbara starr. >> a new worry about how far al-assad will go to keep his grip on power. the u.s. now believes the syrian regime has moved some of its chemical weapons in recent days. as the fighting continues, u.s. officials will only say the weapons are still under the control of assad forces but a former cia director says make no mistake, the u.s. is urgently trying to gather all the intelligence it can. >> i would see that ratcheting up. you just want to know, look, at the end of the day if something untoward is happening, you want to have as much time as possible to assess what it is and be able to develop a response. >> the pentagon won't comment on the story first reported by the wall street journal but said any use of chemical weapons by syria would be a red line for the international community
be decided by wall street and not main street? >>> and home of the beret. the u.s. olympic team in french hats and blue blazers. do these guys look ready for the olympics or a croquet match in the hamptons? >>> good morning to you. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining us. we begin this morning with a terrifying airline flight into miami. this morning, we are learning just how bad it was. flight 1780 was en route from aruba when it slammed into turbulence on its initial descent about 30 minutes before landing. pilots landed without major incident but a dozen people were injured, five of them taken to the hospital. >> i never felt something like that in the past. basically, we didn't know anything. and the bumps, you just think that it's going down. >> i thought we were going to die. it was scary. >> john is in miami following this story. i guess american airlines is saying there was nothing on the radar to indicate such violent turbulence in the air. the passengers had no warning? >> well, they had their seat belts on because they were on its final descent, 30 minutes from lan
this process leads us. >> the term the deputy attorney general used is at least $175 million. >> you were there on monday wondering how you think your attorneys are doing. can you explain our summarize why this case is so important? >> the case is pending and it is really inappropriate for me to comment during a pending case. our pleadings will continue to do the talking for us. it is my understanding closing arguments will occur tomorrow and the case will be submitted to the court. we will continue to vigorously enforce section 5 and other provisions of the voting rights act. >> why did you bring the case in the first case? >> we fought our objection with the state of texas, we concluded that they had not met their burden of establishing the absence of discriminatory purpose and discriminatory intent. that is what the trial is about. the burden is on the state. we are presenting our case and the state is presenting bears. the intervenors are presenting bears and the court will soon speak on this issue. >> one more question. >> there have been reports in the last month or so that governme
